    I was getting over a bad cold but the chest congestion and cough wouldn't go away. This made me a little bit spacey but no moreso than does Sudafed, or most other cold meds (and I was sleep-deprived, anyway, because I'd been awake, coughing, for two nights).

    My congestion was so bad I couldn't cough anything up and chest was tight. Took 1 dose of Mucinex DM and it started clearing up the congestion within 1-1/2 to 2 hours. Could breathe again. Was drowzy but welcomed this as I know rest is the best thing when sick with the flu. I would recommend this for anyone who is looking for congestion relief.

    This medicine loosened up the mucus that was inside my throat/chest. I thought it worked better than the medicine that the doctor prescribed for me to take. I usually experience drowsiness with other medicines but not with Mucinex. The only con is I experienced dry mouth a little. Just drink lots of fluids because it is worth it!

    Seemed to work fine in clearing out the unwanted mucus when I'm sick. I've never experienced any side effects.
